Sebastian Bergman is a Swedish crime drama television series that premiered in 2010 on the MHz Networks and ran until 2013. The show was created by Hans Rosenfeldt and shows the story of Sebastian Bergman, a psychologist, and criminal profiler, who returns to his hometown after a long absence to assist the police in solving a series of murders.

Sebastian Bergman is a complex and self-absorbed character who struggles with addiction and personal demons. His troubled past, including the accidental death of his pregnant wife and daughter, has left him emotionally numb and distant from others. Despite his flaws, Sebastian is a brilliant profiler with a unique ability to get inside the minds of killers and understand their motivations.

The show's first season features a series of murders that all seem to be connected to a ten-year-old case involving the disappearance of a young girl. Sebastian is called in to assist the police in solving the case and comes face to face with his past when he discovers that the lead detective on the case is his own daughter, Vanja. The two embark on a tense and emotional journey to uncover the truth about the girl's disappearance and the other murders that follow.

One of the show's strengths is its well-developed characters, including the members of the police team working on the case. While Sebastian is the central figure, the show spends considerable time exploring the backstories and motivations of the other characters, including Vanja, the lead detective; Torkel, the head of forensics; Ursula, the profiler; and Billy, the novice detective.

The show also features a number of twists and turns in the plot, keeping the audience on their toes as they try to solve the case along with the characters. Each episode includes flashbacks to the past, revealing more about Sebastian's history and how it connects to the present-day murders.

The production values of the show are high, with a strong emphasis on creating a moody and atmospheric tone that matches the seriousness of the subject matter. The cinematography is stylish and adds to the overall feeling of tension and suspense.

Overall, Sebastian Bergman is a well-crafted crime drama that offers an intriguing twist on the standard procedural format. The show's depiction of Sebastian's damaged psyche and complex relationships with the other characters elevate it beyond a typical crime drama, making it a compelling and emotionally resonant viewing experience.
